Shooting all over Europe and Germany

It’s the same old story which I’m sure many of our colleagues can identify with.

Camera Crew Germany is a dedicated camera crewing and production services company and we are coordinating camera crews all over Europe on a daily basis. It’s a time intensive process and things like social media get left behind in favour of more pressing issues…

However, we all know that blogging and social media updates have to be done, unfortunately ours isn’t a daily update and becomes kind of general with many shoots covered in one article as below.

Since our last update about our snowed in crew in Switzerland and our legal videographer in Amsterdam we’ve been travelling to drier locations throughout the land and beyond.

Discovery Canada got us to interview a Munich based expert whose agenda was glowing chameleons. We knew chameleons changed colour to adapt to their surroundings, but who knew they glowed in UV light?! We then covered another shoot for them in Amsterdam, one of our Swiss clients had us filming an operation in Berlin, Bloomberg had us shooting financial news in and around Frankfurt, DHL kept us busy with corporate interviews in Bonn, one of our regular London based clients had us shooting corporate footage in Frankfurt and last but not least we had a large pharmaceutical shoot in London.

Legal videography in Amsterdam

Our legal videographer spent last week in Amsterdam working as always for US based lawyers involved in civil litigation court proceedings.
Legal videography is one of our niche specialities and takes us all over Europe. Amsterdam is understandably one of our favourites with plenty to do and see during down time.

Bloomberg LiveU shoot in Munich

Bloomberg TV is keeping us on our toes again for a shoot in Munich last week. They requested their favourite cameraman from Frankfurt to travel to Bavaria to interview the Telekom CEO at the “Digital Live Design Conference”. We shot on the ever so popular Sony PMW200 and used the very handy the Live Unit for streaming.

Snowtime in Davos, Switzerland

 
Each year in January world leaders, politicians, bankers, journalists and the media descend on Davos, nestled high in the mountains in Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum. We’ve also got a crew shooting a corporate film there.

Amsterdam shoot

 
The PBS broadcaster out of Chicago requested we send one of our Amsterdam camera crews and equipment to shoot part of a documentary on alternative architecture. Its part of an ongoing shoot which is focusing on Nada and Marc Breitman, 2 architects living and working in Paris. We crewed the Paris shoot, too.

Amsterdam and Frankfurt film crews

After a well earned break the year kickstarted with some lively shoots in Germany and the Netherlands. Our Cologne and Frankfurt crews have been busy shooting corporates and one of our Amsterdam crews just shot for Rolex in Weerselo (Netherlands). We’re currently shooting in Paris for Chicago based PBS and preparing for a long shoot in Davos (Switzerland).
Here’s looking forward to another great year!

Looking back to a spectacular year 2017!

Before the holiday season comes to an end we would like to extend our warmest wishes and heartfelt thanks to you, our clients, our colleagues and our friends for making 2017 such a spectacular year for us at CCG.

Munich camera crew shooting the world’s tallest wind turbine

Discovery Canada requested we shoot the world’s tallest wind turbine in Southern Germany.
Not easy to find a crew to shoot in such extreme conditions but we did, even though the cameraman said this photo doesn’t show the fear in his eyes…

Panaura Octodome for Christmas

Christmas is around the corner and we decided to give ourselves a great Christmas present: The one and only PanAura Octodome! It’s by far the best light we’ve got and is high up on most cinematographer’s wish list. Simply the best!

Shooting Santa

camera crew for hire
The last couple of weeks have been very busy again. We were on our way to Amsterdam for a shoot and heard that it had been cancelled at very short notice. This was followed by a series of 3 corporate shoots in Düsseldorf which were all cancelled the day beforehand. Apart from that we have had corporate and broadcast shoots in Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Cologne and last but not least the whacky Santa Claus Championships in snowy Samnaun Switzerland. Our camera kits have ranged between Sony FS7, Sony A7s and Sony F800 with a few GoPros thrown in for good luck. 🙂
